The main character of this story is Griffin Bing a.k.a. the man with the plan. He and his friends find an original Babe Ruth baseball card in an old abandoned house. They take the card to the local pawn shop. S. Wendell Palomino, recognizes it was a very rare card that is worth a million dollars but gives Griffen next to nothing. Read and find out if Griffen and his friends get the card back. I thought this story was very interesting and entertaining. The characters are about my age and it’s fun to follow along with some of the things they do. Like the part where the boys break into the store, I wouldn’t ever really do that but it sounds fun! If you like books about baseball or action-adventure you’ll like this one I think the recommended audience for this book is 9-13.

This book is about Griffin, who finds a Babe Ruth baseball card at an old house. He sells it, but soon finds out he was tricked into selling it for much less than it was worth. He plots his revenge. This book is interesting, and I recommend it.
